Don’t miss these 7 awesome events and activities when you head down to Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Hall this weekend!


Get set for an adrenaline-pumping good time at okto Kids Fiesta on 20 and 21 January at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Halls 401 & 402!

Your kiddos can expect to take part in lots of fun activities and events, so make sure not to miss these highlights…


1. Get crafty

Little hands will get really busy at the various art-and-craft activity zones. At the okto-Copter zone, fans of Ollie & Friends can help the beloved mascot decorate his okto-copter, Ollie’s special “moving” house that travels everywhere in oktopolis.


After that, head over to Teddytown, where your sweetie can try her hand at making her own teddy hairband that will instantly transform her into one of the cute, furry characters from Teddies!


2. Learn to dance

Can’t wait to move and groove? Sign the little ones up for free dance lessons, where they’ll master Upside Down dance moves under the guidance of the Upside Down cast! Lessons will be conducted every hour from 11.30am to 5.30pm.

See if junior can “bend it like Beckham” at the various stations of the oktoCup Super Kicks Circuit!

3. Participate in the Cutest Kids Contest

If you reckon your peewee possesses the most adorable cheeks or boasts mesmerising eyes, get them to strut their stuff in the Teddies Cutest Kids Contest. Your mini-me will bring home a photo keepsake and also stand a chance to win shopping vouchers. The results of the contest, which takes place three times a day, will be announced at 2pm, 4pm and 6pm.


4. Brush up on your math

Get your numbers-averse preschooler to pop by the Counting with Paula zone where she can learn maths in an interactive and engaging way. Check out the three activity stations where you can count in space, have some maths fun in Egypt, or count at the 1, 2, 3 Farm!


5. Test your footy skills

Find out if junior can “bend it like Beckham” at the various stations of the oktoCup Super Kicks Circuit! By testing his footy skills, he’ll get points and try to top the leaderboard. He may even walk away with oktoCup merchandise and limited edition thumb drives! Plus, football fans, don’t forget to catch the Urban Street Team’s football freestyle performance at 5.15pm on both days.


6. Meet and greet your favourite characters

Meet the cast and characters of your favourite okto shows! Chat with Ollie and Cherry (Ollie & friends), Tizzy and Dom (Teddies), Moomba and Beary Big (Junction Tree) and the cast of Upside Down while taking plenty of pictures! Character appearances are from 1pm to 5pm on both days.

7. Dance along at the Mascots Parade

At 1pm and 5.30pm on both days, your favourite characters will be performing during the Mascots Parade. So, kiddos, get set to dance along!
